Big Lottery Fund (BLF) have made changes to our funding so that it’s easier to apply for National Lottery funding.
BLF have nearly tripled the number of staff they have across England, and they will be working more closely with communities that BLF support. This means applicants will have the same local point of contact throughout the application process.
BLF are also moving away from standardised application forms so that they can focus on supporting the best ideas, not the people who are best at filling in forms. You can now submit your ideas online, by phone or in person.
There are three types on funding on offer:
National Lottery Awards for All
Our National Lottery Awards for All scheme offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.
